The Skeletal Army is a boss in Precasia. Unlike other bosses, the Skeletal Army is fought in waves, where new enemies spawn in after the old ones are defeated, until the end.

Spawning[edit | edit source]

The boss fight sequence can be initiated by using an Ancient Orb on an Army Block.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The boss fight is fought in waves, each wave containing multiple entities. There are 40 waves total in the boss fight.

There are a total of 11 unique creatures that can appear in the boss fight. These include:

Each wave has a set amount of the above listed mobs that will always occur in said wave. Every single wave, except wave 40, has a skele elder as a part of the wave. Skeletron only appears as a part of the last wave.

To advance to the next wave, the player only needs to defeat the skele elder of the wave. The player can choose to ignore the other mobs. When defeated, the skele elder will spawn the next wave, though the wave might spawn on the roof of the structure or in the treetops if they are directly above.

Once the player reaches the last wave, no skele elder will spawn, and instead, the player will find a single Skeletron. Defeating this Skeletron will win the boss fight and grant the player the loot drops.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

It should be noted that only players with very good equipment should attempt the Skeletal Army. The Skeletal Army is incredibly difficult to do alone. It is recommended to fight the Skeletal Army with a group of players. If a player is fighting the army solo, extra precautions should be taken to be able to survive. It is recommended to bring several methods of healing for a solo attempt.

When fighting the Skeletal Army, players should highly consider bringing a Rejuvenation Staff. This will allow players to heal throughout the fight without the need of stacking healing potions. A Life Lamp can also be extremely helpful.

It is advised that players bring equipment enchanted with projectile protection, in order to reduce the damage from the Skeleman. Due to the fact that there are no effects besides attack damage (no explosions, poison, fire etc.) it is recommended that players bring armor that will give them a tactical advantage, such as Speed Armor or Alacrity Armor.

For weaponry, it is recommended to bring melee weapons as well as range weapons. In the arena there are many good places to utilize a ranged weapon. Melee weapons should be brought because it is possible that a player will run out of ammunition during the fight. Weapons that hit multiple enemies are extremely helpful when fighting the Skeletal Army. The Show Staff does superb if the player focuses just on the Skele-Elder. The monsters rack up the damage output to sometimes 500 Full Hearts of damage, practically insta-killing every monster on the field.

Skele-Elder[edit | edit source]

One Skele-Elder spawns in every wave, and killing it will spawn the next wave, regardless of if the current wave has been defeated. Because of this, it is recommended to kill the Skele-Elder last unless the player has a very good AoE weapon.

Skelepigs[edit | edit source]

Skelepigs are the easiest mobs within the Skeletal Army. Skelepigs do not have any special features except for slightly enhanced movement speed. It is recommended to focus on the Skelepigs at the end of any wave, after all alternative creatures are dead.

Skele-Hoppers[edit | edit source]

Skele-Hoppers are the mid-difficulty creature in the Skeletal Army. Skele-Hoppers will jump around while dealing decent amounts of damage. Skele-Hoppers are a mid level priority and should only be focused when threatening a player.

Skeleman[edit | edit source]

Skelemen are the ranged creatures within the Skeletal Army. Skelemen are the most dangerous creatures in the army due to the fact that they can group up on a player and deal large amounts of damage from a distance, which can heavily damage the player's armor. Skelemen should be the top priority for being killed.

Skeletron[edit | edit source]

Skeletron is a very dangerous end wave boss. Although Skeletron does not possess any special abilities, Skeletron will melee you for a very large amount of damage. If the player is on hard mode, skeletron can easily kill a fully armored player in only 1 or 2 hits. If not properly equipped, this hit can easily kill a player alone. It is highly recommended to fight Skeletron with ranged attacks due to the fact he only uses melee attacks and lacks any form of protection against players shooting from a distance.

Skeletron has a 100% chance to drop his statue.
